Note to son

When she moved to Naivasha she remarried and bore the four children she killed in cold blood on Sunday.

Naivasha OCPD Samuel Waweru said they are in possession a note believed to have been written by the woman to her eldest son from the first marriage.

The letter's author explains she could not have killed her children if she had a stable source of income.

If only I had a stable job, I would not have killed your siblings. I have murdered my four kids to cut off the generation link from their family," the letter reads in part.
